Good news - The Aqueduct Inn reopened this May, and serves excellent real ale and pub grub.
View of "The Aki" pub from the canal - yes it really is that yellow. A couple of the locals complained about the colour - my answer was always the same "I don't care what colour it is - it's better than it being boarded up with paint flaking off the walls". The colour of the paint certainly did a good job of getting people talking about it. Great!
It also proved a great tool for me in the Visitor Information Centre "see that bright yellow pub a mile over there? that's where you'll find the bus stop to Chirk."
The flowers on the boat were fantastic during the summer, but with all the rain recently, they've had it for this year. No apologies, the rest of the blog will be taken up with pics of our beautiful flowers, thanks to Dave's efforts.......
